Yeah.... a long weekend

Not much happening here this weekend although I did have a crop on Friday night and even managed a sleep in this morning. Looking forward to a BBQ with friends tomorrow night before back to school on Tuesday.

Managed to get some DT layouts completed this weekend too. Jo sent me some Prima, Shabby Chich papers - way out of my comfort zone. I am actually quite happy with the results so I hope you like them too.

On the baptism layout I used a tutorial by Debbie Buckland to create the rose. See here for the video on how Debbie does it. Instead of using the Heart template from Fiskars which I do not own yet, I used my Cricut and cut several different sizes of heart from the Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge.

I did mention in my last post that I went to a Fiskars crop a couple of weekends ago. Here are a few of the cards and the two beautiful layouts that Michelle taught us. Visit her blog here to see the other cards we had to create.

I haven't added a greeting to this one yet as I'm not sure what event I will use it for.



Loved Michelle's idea on this one to use a pearlescent embossing powder randomly across the front of the average cardstock to give a classy effect. Might have to find me some of that embossing powder.

I really enjoyed the flower making on this one and the papers were fun to use too.


This cutie is my niece's little girl. Again we have lots of stamping of flowers on this one. The title is Cricut cut with the Mickey Font and All mixed up tag option.

Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend if you are in Australia and having a long weekend for the Queen's Birthday. I'm hoping for another sleep in........
